How do you fit 10 kids into a mini van? Like this. It's the best way to spend a few minutes after church while waiting for their mother's to finish their song practice.

Our first visit to "Cow Town" here in the city. Who would ever guess we'd run into a gator in cow town? It took us a minute to know whether he was real or not - he was so still. But, we eventually saw him breathe. Can't fool us! Later, Gator!

Spring seems to have finally SPRUNG around here. We have been enjoying the weather with walks in the park, fires in the pit out back, and bike rides to school and work. The blue skies and green grass really do something for the spirit! Here's to hoping it sticks around for a while!

Alas, we're still sick around here. Coughs. Runny noses. Is it a cold? Is it allergies? Wish we knew, so we could get rid of it!

JJ changes her fads as often as the weather changes here in Saskatchewan! Lately, she's been workin' the rock star thang. She loves her rock star T-shirt, sports the way huge 'diamond' ring, the messy hair, and the look is completed with the Hanna Montana guitar. Rock it, girl

Happy tenth birthday to a gorgeous girl! We love you, TJ!

What a little grown up! Grandma and Grandpa Grunewald gave TJ a gift card to Old Navy, and she had a wonderful time shopping for items that are SO her. She chose a turquoise top (her favorite color), two cute pairs of flip flops, and an adorable water bottle for her bike. She took forever deciding on what to buy, but you were thrilled with what you chose.

April 1 - 11

April 11, 2010
With extra food made for supper, why not invite the missionaries over to help us eat it? We were sad to hear that Elder Randall was leaving us (in a transfer). He is an amazing missionary and person!April 10, 2010
Celebrating TJ's 10th birthday with a Hula Party! She invited Kaitlyn Howie over for dancing, presents, swimming, and making bracelets! Aloha!

Why do things as fun as trampolines so often end in tears? It's either some getting hurt, or someone having too much fun to want to leave. Bayboo was the latter, in this case :)

This is me keeping my promise of allowing myself in more of our family photos. Believe it or not, I have been improving in letting myself be photographed, for my children's sake if nothing else. I want to be a part of this witness to their life. It is a difficult thing for me to overcome, but I'm slowly improving.April 7, 2010
As much as I miss the mountains in Alberta, there is something so incredibly free and beautiful as the Canadian Prairie. I love the open, endless skies and the golden fields stretching out forever.

New season, new hairdo. It's shorter than I wanted, but I'm actually diggin it!
April 5, 2010
After living here for over 2 years, we FINALLY visited the set of one of our favorite Canadian shows, "Corner Gas". We loved seeing it in person and spending some time wandering around "Dog River", which is really Rouleau, SK.

What an age we live in! We can enjoy all sessions of Conference in our own home, watching on TV or on the Internet. TJ took many notes and tried very hard to watch every session.

The Easter Bunny did well this year with DVDs, pudding, chocolate, fruit snacks, and candies!

Time to break out the bikes and enjoy that sunshine! It's not my favorite thing, but once I get the wind in my hair, it's fantastic.
April 1, 2010
We bought our new HP laptop today - and that's no joke. Neither was the price tag! It's amazing how much we rely on computers for our business and just every day life.
